Making good guacamole isn’t rocket science, but I’m one of these people who get upset when I see mayo, cream or other things in these lines going into a good ol’ bowl of guac. In my humble opinion, guacamole shouldn’t have much more than avocado, onion, tomato, lime and coriander. I’m aware there are, of course, variations to this formula so here is my recipe for making perfect guacamole! I hope I’m not upsetting any friends/followers from Mexico… as far as I’ve done my research this should be pretty authentic, but if you make yours differently do comment below!


Serves 4-6 | Prep 10 minutes | No cooking

Guacamole 1

You’ll need:

  • 2 ripe avocados, chopped;
  • 1/2 small red onion, finely chopped;
  • 1 ripe tomato, finely chopped;
  • A small handful pickled jalapenos, finely chopped;
  • A small handful coriander, finely chopped
  • 1 lime, juiced.

Put the avocado in a medium bowl and roughly mash with a fork. Add all the ingredients apart from the lime juice to the avocado and stir well. Finally, add the lime juice to taste – start with adding half and then continue to add lime juice to your liking. It should taste fresh but not sour. Add a sprinkle of sea salt and stir well. Serve immediately.

I make this almost every other week to go with any Mexican food we make at home. It’s one of my favourite dips!
